Puma’s fan-favorite Suede model has long been a staple for B-boys and hip-hoppers alike. Inspired by pioneering sneakerheads Run DMC, Puma introduce the Suede “Fat Lace” in a laceless format. Along with a slip-on style elastic closure, the shoes notably feature a Formstripe tapered to resemble a shoelace. Available now in black, red and yellow.
Born in Serbia and experiencing poverty and uneasy-times, photographer Boogie now calls New York City home thanks to a bit of luck in immigrating to the US. Becoming the focus of this latest The New York Times Lens feature, a series of photographs offer us an in-depth look into Boogie’s eye for capturing the often overlooked aspects of New York culture in his signature black and white style. However 2009 has seen him dabble more and more into color images. Check the feature out here.

Part investigative journalism, part personal crusade, Vigilante Vigilante is a renegade documentary that jumps directly into the cultural fray over graffiti and illegal street expression. Filmmakers Max Good and Nathan Wollman document their mission to uncover the identity of a prolific anti-graffiti vigilante known as the "Silver Buff." Strangely, the Silver Buff is himself a vandal; he surreptitiously spray paints metallic silver blobs over existing graffiti, almost always doing more damage than was there to begin with.
The film steadily ventures deeper into the world of graffiti and street expression through the eyes of practitioners, opponents, fans, and authorities. Graffiti writers from both coasts give their perspectives on what it means to write and why they do it. The film also profiles three other infamous vigilantes: LA’s “Graffiti Guerilla,” Joe Connolly, New Orleans’ “Gray Ghost,” Fred Radtke, and Portland’s “Silver Circle,” Ron Engman.
Ultimately, Vigilante Vigilante is a unique exploration of the individual drive to express oneself and affect one's environment. Through the passion of its most dedicated detractors and advocates, it is clear that graffiti is much more than just insignificant scrawl on a wall. Whether seen as dangerous, disrespectful, and anarchistic or inspiring, free, and revolutionary, graffiti is anything but unimportant.
